UBS' Business Jet latest survey which main points summarized below.Contact us to receive a detailed report that includes separate analyses of business jet flight activity and used market indicators.
- Index at 49, up 21%: Our latest Business Jet Market Index came in at 49, 21% higher than our prior survey from January with all three market segment indices (small/mid/large) increasing to near 50. Our measure of absolute business conditions increased 12% to 4.5, as high as it has been since 2008.
- Customer interest & 12 mo outlook lead survey: All five component scores moved higher with large increases in our customer interest, pricing and 12-month outlook scores driving the overall increase in our index. Our customer interest and 12-month outlook scores are both now well above 50, indicating incremental improvement, although still high inventory levels remain a drag on our index.
- North America customer interest strongest: Our overall customer interest score increased 27% led by strength in North America (73), Latin America (68) and Asia (66), partially offset by relative weakness in Middle East (53) and Europe (40).
- See positive risk-rewards for stocks: We believe North America bizjet is improving driven by replacement demand postponed during the downturn. While the bizjet stocks have moved higher, we still see positive risk-rewards as we don’t think stocks incorporate much for bizjets at current levels including Buy rated TXT/COL/GD.
